I have actually tried to make lye and it didnt work. Almost the same process was used and I found that after a few tries you need A TON OF ASH!
Probably two giant barrels FULL to make enough lye to produce one bar of soap.
You might want to store lye or make soap and store it instead.
I would like to talk to someone who made it already.. maybe i screwed it up but we were careful to listen to instructions so ...?

teatree oil is an antifungal and an antibacterial . You can also use it for mouthwash,toothpaste concoctions,bodywash.... It is a definite keeper!
I guess in th elong term after all supplies are used it may be useless.. Unless your in Australia and the trees went unharmed:)

The tv show Jericho I saw a few times really clued me into the importance of salt too. Salt is antibacterial as well and the salt mines after the fallout in the show Jericho were the most valuable part of the land because of all the fabulous uses for salt. One that ties into cleanliness would be that salt kills bacteria and bacteria is what causes BO:)x
